July 16th, what a day.....!

So I had my 38 week check up... good news.... I am dialated between 2 & 3cm!! WOOHOOO! The Midwife couldn't believe the progress. She said that he dropped significantly, and I was 50% effaced. And I was like... ummm wait a second. And she said, is that bad?? and I said, "well seeing as I was 70% last week, I'm kinda going backwards!!!" she told me that it might be because he's so much lower now, that it's more accurate this time. So that's good I guess. We also go to have an ultrasound, cause she wanted to make sure the head was down. It was really fun to be able to do that!! We saw the head, the eyes, the spine, and the heartbeat! And yes, his head is fully down!
Yeah, I'm ready for this guy to come out!!!




Okay, now onto Baxter... For those of you who don't know who he the little guy is... he is our sweet little kitty. He has been so spoiled, we've pretty much treated him like a baby! I'm really worried about how he's going to be once the baby comes. For those of you who don't like cats, and don't understand the LOVE I have for cats, please skip this section!


So anyways... Baxter is an indoor cat. However, we are lucky enough to have a deck that is completely enclosed. So we let him go out there every once and awhile. He LOVES it. He could sit out there all day! And we don't mind, cause it's too high for him to jump down, and it's too far for him to jump up on the roof. And I leave the sliding door open a little so if he wants to come back in, he can. So last night I was making dinner for myself, and it had cooled down enough outside, so I let baxter go out on the deck. I opened the kitchen window so I could watch him. While I"m cooking, I look back several times and he's just sitting on the railing like a cute little kitty. I finish my dinner, and get it ready to take in the other room, I look outside, and baxter's not there. I step outside, and look all around, and under the grill. He's not there. So by now I'm thinking he must have came inside without me seeing. After I finished eating I went looking for him..... I just realized this is a very long story.... and I'm probably losing most of you. So LONG STORY SHORT..... I go outside and look all around shouting his name.... and after about ten minutes I look up on the roof, and there comes bax's little head popping out!! That little stinker found out a way to get up on the roof. I started freaking out! I literally ran up the stairs, grabbed a chair, and ran out on the deck. I finally got him down...... I am seriously suprised I didn't go into labor after all that!!! :) So I guess Baxter won't be allowed out on the deck anymore..... poor little kitty.













Here's a few pictures of him in his favorite spots. I think he's realizing someone important is coming. because he loves being anywhere in the baby's room. Last night I found him up with all the diapers! He loves the car seat. We haven't taken the plastic off yet... so don't worry!! He LOVES the sink. I really think it's his favorite spot in the house. So I guess this is my little blog for Baxter. So he knows we really do love him! Isn't he the cutest thing?!?!

What a naughty (CUTEST THING EVER) little kitty!! You're comment to me made me expect to see something really bad, and I am sure that to you, a million months pregnant, it was pretty bad, but to me, I'm just picturing his cute little head and thinking "Awwww... so cute!!"

Sorry I can't support your anger more :)

What a cute little kitty! I hope that he doesn't have too much shock when the baby comes. One word of caution-- our cat Jack tried to sleep with Kate one time (she was his size after all, nice and snuggly. . .) and that was the last time he was EVER allowed in her room. I was worried he would suffocate her. He LOVED her!
